5 - Bobby's Hideaway
A nice and colourful place for the family is Bobby's Hideaway in Streetsville. With dishes like the 1/2 pounder, Big Bobby, Weekender and Steak & Eggs, you can count on Bobby's Hideaway to offer meaty, full-sized breakfast meals that are rich in protein along with all of the heavy carbohydrates to match it. During the day you will find everything, including veal parmesan, ribs, souvlaki, steak, seafood, pasta, smoked meat and all-day breakfast. As your kids are looking at the caricatures on the wall while eating their Sponge Bob’s Fingers & Fries, you can be having the Weekender.
4 - Bistro Narra
Bistro Narra is a restaurant mostly known to locals, as it is tucked away in a retail plaza off of Thomas St. in the Churchill Meadows neighbourhood. It’s in an area where walking traffic is almost non-existent. Owners Franz and Esther Hochholdinger have been in the restaurant business for over 20 years, and originally specialized in pastries and desserts at their Apricot Tree Cafe in the Sherwood Forrest Village plaza. Bistro Narra is a different concept and their dinner menu offers surf & turf and lobster crepes and specialties like the Narra Schnizel. For dessert, you can have the Salzburger Nockerl, which is their specialty souffle.
3 - Casalinga Ristorante
Located in a plaza at the southwest corner of Mississauga on Royal Windsor and Southdown (yes, that is still Mississauga) is one of the best kept Italian restaurants in the city called Casalinga. This place can't be any bigger than 40 seats and gets packed pretty fast, especially on weekends. They offer house-made gnocchi (small dumplings made from potato, semolina or flour that are usually served with sauce) and house-made gnocchi is usually hard to find, especially in Mississauga. That right there says a lot about the restaurant. We ordered the potato gnocchi that came with lamb, caramelized onions, cherry tomatoes, roasted garlic, mushrooms and tomato sauce. The dish was absolutely delicious and the gnocchi melted in our mouths. You won't be hungry after eating something this generously portioned. They also have thin crust pizza cooked in a stone oven. Casalinga has been around for just over three years, and if they keep serving this hearty Italian food, they will be here for generations to come.
17 Steakhouse and Bar is by far the most impressive new opening of 2015 (and there are only a few months left).Millions were spent redesigning the majestic 32,000 sq. ft. space filled with over the top features such as a gorgeous oversized fresh water aquarium filled with a colourful array of African cichlid fish that’s visible from both the main bar and one of the two private dining rooms. The menu includes a number of U.S., Ontario and Alberta prime cuts of beef, including the tenderloin, strip loin, prime T-bone, porterhouse and tomahawk. You will also find Japanese A5 wagyu and a reasonably priced American flat iron wagyu at $40 for 8 oz. Other options include oysters, ahi tuna, seared scallops, tempura shrimp, fish options, salads, duck confit, bison tenderloin, risotto, chicken, braised back ribs, charcuterie board, calamari and a seafood tower.
1 - Kravingz
Lissa Genobaga and Damian Kubarski are a husband and wife team who are self-proclaimed foodies and steadfast local supporters who love their community in Clarkson - an undiscovered area of the city which has a number of gems including theirs - a new brunch spot called Kravingz. Unique for: Made-from-scratch menu which supports local suppliers. They source a number of the ingredients for their dishes from local bakeries and suppliers such as Manila Bakery’s specialty - a Filipino bread roll known as pandesal, produce from A.J. Lanzarotta, and other ingredients from Truscott Bakery and Sheridan Meats. Signature Dish: The Flip Side (house made longanisa which is a Filipino sausage served with crunchy garlic rice and a fried egg), The Polski Benedict (potato placki is a Polish potato pancake served with smoked salmon or peameal bacon, poached eggs and house made hollandaise), Chicken N’ Waffles (crispy fried chicken served with bacon and jalapeno waffles, bacon dressing and coleslaw) and The Islander (jerk corned beef hash, corn and cheddar grits and poached eggs) are so far the most popular.
